What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this comic book-based detective story about a human in charge of keeping tabs on a community of vampires, werewolves, and zombie in New Orleans has both horror and comedy elements. There's strong monster violence and fighting; scenes include guns, knives, dead bodies, and blood. There's a bit of minor sensuality (characters kiss and wake up in bed together, but no sensitive body parts are shown) and some swearing (including "s--t"). A fictitious drug, vampire blood, is part of the plot, and viewers see minor characters going through withdrawals and "shooting up."
